HTF welcomes first cohort

first_imgThe Harvard Graduate School of Education is pleased to announce that 20 Harvard College seniors have been selected as the first cohort of Harvard Teachers Fellows (HTF) — an innovative program designed to create pathways for Harvard College undergraduates to enter a teaching career.“I am absolutely delighted to welcome these 20 fellows to the HGSE community. As Harvard undergraduates, these students could choose any career path imaginable. They have chosen teaching, and, to me, there is no higher calling,” said Dean James Ryan. “I am both deeply thankful for their commitment to this work and incredibly excited to have them all as part of our inaugural class. I have no doubt that they, alongside Harvard Teacher Fellows Program alumni for years to come, will have a powerful impact on the lives of students. And I hope that their example inspires others at Harvard, across the Ivy League, and beyond to follow in their footsteps and to choose teaching as a career.”The program, designed by HGSE faculty experts in teaching and learning, was created in response to the growing interest in education among Harvard undergraduates. It was also designed to respond to the need for more well-prepared teachers by drawing Harvard undergraduates into the teaching profession. Read Full Storylast_img read more
